This was a GREAT VACATION.... The place was great and we slept six very easily. The place's interior was very very appealing to the eye and it's location was excellent. The owner of the condo was great communicating with me. We were having such a great time when Carol called to make sure everything was ok ,we were never there to recieve the calls.LOL!!!! We plan to visit again next year. Great place would recommend to everyone.

3rd Time's a Charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year in this condo, and it was the best. Jan weather can be iffy, and this year was different only because it was warmer. The owner is awesome! Very accommodating and always accessible for any issues that arise. The condo condition was excellent. It is a bit dated but always clean and in good shape. It is a first floor unit and located in the back of the property, so there is very little traffic. We will be back.

Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this unit for the month of Jan 2014. While very cold that month for FL, we found plenty to keep us occupied. This unit is in a superb location for viewing the bay or the gulf. It was well represented on the website, and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating. The on-site management, however, was a problem at first since upon arrival we discovered this unit was still occupied. It took a day to get the mess sorted out. This was NOT the owner's fault. I recommend calling Runaway early on the day of your arrival to make sure your unit is ready; and call early on Saturdays. Once established in the unit, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The egrets and herons on the site are very friendly, sometimes too friendly. Don't leave your lanai door open! The views of the lake and the fountain are so relaxing. The cable system is bare-bones basic, so I'd recommend getting Bright House Network to upgrade when you get there. They will do it if you're there for a month. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone, and we hope to get back there ASAP. The owner, Carol, couldn't have been nicer and was very professional in our negotiations. Great area for all activities; we enjoyed too many to list here. Try the free trolley system too. You'll find it much easier to get around, especially during the busy winter months.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Tim - So happy you had a good time. I am also pleased that the first night fiasco was resolved asap after my intervention as it has never happened before in 10 years of renting and as you say was totally out of my control! Hope to see you again next year. Carol

perfect,just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the condo,on lovely Anna Maria island and enjoyed every minute ,the unit was spotless ,had everything we needed ,including a washer and dryer ,which not all the other units have,it was overlooking the pond and was quiet and peacefull ,it was a 2 minute walk to the beach and there were chairs and umbrellas as well as a cool box,in fact,as i have already said everything that we required was supplied,several restaurants are within walking distance and we found the location to be ideal.

Carol the owner rang us to check if everything was ok and the few questions we asked before booking were answered truthfully and promptly,we would not hesitate in recommending booking this unit ,you wont be disappointed .

A Great place to relax and chill out

  • 5 of 5

Just as Carol described, paradise. Lovely clean and bright condo, in a perfect location. Well equipt with everything you need, down to the cool box for your champagne on the beach to watch the sun sets. Could walk to lovely restaurants along the beach, or get the trolley bus to the pier or anywhere along the route. Fishing from the pier on the complex, and only a very short walk to beach, just perfect. Will definitely be back

Wonderful - a terrific family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed the condo tremendously! All of our stress melted away! There was plenty of room for the four of us, the pool area was large and comfortable, and the beach was right across the street. We lounged over coffee on the patio every morning where we enjoyed the view of the pond and fountain. There are plenty of delicious restaurants nearby, and we used the charcoal grill at the condo when we opted to stay in for dinner. We look forward to staying here again! Thank you, Carol!
